Waves Mandala Bands

I’ve had some very interesting projects finally completed in the last few weeks – I decided that it’s far more interesting to put up complete works rather than ‘in progress shots’ which will probably work better with my slack blog updating schedule.

 

First up is Ian who has been having this top of arm/chest geo piece done over the last few months and I’m quite happy with the results and I hope he is too.P1150046.10x8web

 

Mary has been very regular in her appointments meaning that we got this sleeve completed relatively quickly. I tried to keep this piece light and delicate to an extent to suit her light frame.P1150019.10x8web P1150010.10x8web

Apologies for the blood patch on this but we were pushed for time at the end of the session so the young lady could catch her bus back to Aberdeen.P1140873.10x8web

We finally finished Nicole’s backpiece with a simple dotwork motif – having been tanning herself and some of the tattoo is 9 months old makes the picture look a little unbalanced.

A fun bit of Sacred Geometry for Daniel – apparently it was from an old book cover.

Lastly this was a bit of a test – 5 freehand bands around the arm with a small Arabic pattern cartouche – although I was nervous about doing this I really enjoyed it in the end.P1150040.10x8web

Catching Up

So for once I’m keeping on top of this sort of……

I’ve had some fun in Edinburgh and also at my guest spot in Liverpool for which I want to thank Richie and Paul at Forever True Tattoo for being fantastic hosts and gentlemen. I always enjoy my stay at the studio and they make me feel completely welcome and like a part of the crew – cheers guys!

In Liverpool I did some fun work too and here are some of them.

Jack who I have been tattooing in Edinburgh came across to Liverpool too. To reiterate – I did not do the triangle/zelda, the strip pattern or the crow which Jack already had and for the life of me I cannot remember the name of the tattooist for which I apologise.

Healed Work

Since it was such a long time since I’d done an update (see previous entry) I had customers come back through again giving me the opportunity to see their tattoos all healed and settled in.

Late Updates

My goodness – it has been months since I last posted! I have been busy and was away for most of February in California working at 2 Spirit Tattoo with the amazing crew there and then having a break with my wife on a roadtrip through southern Cali.

Without further ado here is some of the work I have been doing.

20150115_6087Carolina sat very well over a two day period to get this half sleeve done – I’d done the mandala at the back on her shoulder whilst working the Evian Tattoo Convention back in October 2014.

I added the Tudor Rose style piece to Jacks already existing triangle geometric work.20150315_5951 20150329_5930 20150329_5932 20150329_5933

Robin already had a celtic piece at the top of his arm – this was a bit of a thorn in our sides but we just worked into and around it to make one design.20150402_5907 20150402_5913 20150402_5921

End of a Year

So I’ve rested up over Christmas, got to know my new additions to my family (of the kitten variety) , and am ready to start the new year, which is shaping up pretty well already.

I ended last year with some nice tattoos, thanks to all my customers in Edinburgh, London, Stockholm, Brussels and Evian, hope to see some of you again this year. Here’s some of what I’ve been doing this past month.

Long Distance and Long Sittings

Last week at Lew and Danny both travelled up from down south to get tattooed in Edinburgh.

Lew sat for a whole day to complete his abstract geometric sleeve.

Danny stuck it out for two and a half days for his lady Odin and mandala half sleeve and chest panel, which I was really happy with the result of.

It’s interesting to note that the larger more complex projects are coming from clients travelling from down south, and I reckon it’s time that the Scots step up!

Kalinga Kalinga Geo Bee Ganesh

I had some fun stuff in over the last couple of weeks – I’m really enjoying putting new twists on Filipino Kalinga tribal tattoo patterns. The chest piece is really very influenced by my pal Roxx at 2 Spirit in San Francisco so all due respects to her. I also got to finish up Martin’s Kalinga/Geo sleeve which was a very interesting project – surprisingly both of these pieces were these guys first tattoos – ‘Go big or go home’? Well done fellas!

Flying Visits

In the last few weeks I’ve been over to Stockholm to work at Infamous Tattoo Studio which is one of my favourite guest spots as well as my regular guest spot in London and I’ve been busy up in the ‘home base’ – Red Hot and Blue in Edinburgh.  I’ve had folks down from Orkney and further beyond so it’s been flying visits all round. Here’s some of the fruits of my labour.
